Abstract:
The experiment was conducted to study the effect of packaging on storage behavior of chickpea grain during the 2018-19 and 2019-20. Initially, chickpea grains (cv. GJG-3) were cleaned shorted, graded and sun dried up to 7.51-7.71% (w.b.) for safe storage. There were seven type of packaging material were used viz. Jute bag (JB), Polyethylene lined jute bag (JBP), PP woven laminated bag (PPL), HDPE bag with vacuum (HDPEV), Multilayer Coextruded Plastic bag with Vacuum (MCPV), Polyethylene Laminated Aluminum foil bag with Vacuum (ALPEV), Perdue Improve Crop Storage bag (PICS).The storage was carried out for up to twelve months. The sample was taken every two month to study quality parameter. Maximum moisture content was recorded in jute bag followed by JBP and PPL. There was significant effect on packaging material of insect population, grain damage and weight loss for storage. Jute bag has highest insect population (268 numbers/500 g), grain damage (93.15%) and weight loss (16.91%) followed by JBP. However, there was no insect, damage and weight loss observed in rest of the treatments. Maximum protein content was recorded in HDPEV bag and it is at par with other packaging material except JB and JBP. Minimum cooking time observed in JB (46.17 min) while maximum (75 min) in ALPEV bag end the end of twelve month. Maximum swelling capacity (0.249 ml/grain) was found in PP woven laminated bag whereas it was found lower in vacuum packed bags. Maximum germination (91.0%) and seed vigour index (1128) was recorded in PP woven laminated bag followed by PICS bag. Seed qualities like germination and vigour index of the grain was found poor in vacuum packed bags, JB bags and JBP bags. The internal cost benefit ratio were ramined 1:16, 1:23, 1:18,1:20, 1:10 and 1:24 for JB, JBP, PPL, HDPEV, MCPV, ALPEV and PICS respectively over jute bag.
